Cryptographic Libraries for Developers teaches developers about the available APIs and helps them select the right ones for their projects based on platform, language, and regulatory requirements. The book serves as a nuts-and-bolts guide to writing software using these libraries and provides abundant examples and detailed explanations throughout. The libraries covered include OpenSSL, R...

Portable software development is writing software that runs on a broad range of computer systems instead of just one (e.g., Windows). Programmers often pick up the idioms, tricks and methodologies for developing cross-platform software through sheer trial and error, as they encounter the same mistakes and patterns of code over time. If you're an intermediate-to advanced-level programmer who'd rather cut to the chase, Write Portable Code contains the lessons, patterns and knowledge you'll need for developing cross-platform software. Write Portable Code explains how to: * avoid common portability mistakes when starting out a new project, thereby saving time when a port must occur * re-factor existing, non-portable code so that it can be easil...

The touchpoints are code analysis, risk analysis, penetration (vulnerability) testing, security tests, abuse cases, security requirements, and security operations. Part one outlines the basics of software security. Chapter one informs us that problems exist in softw... Rest of this review on the detail page
